Ascot Silver Cup Ante-Post
I watched the Hennessy and while it was on I was taken with the run of The Giant Bolster . He got tired in the end but had jumped and ran with great purpose up to the 2nd last. I think he has a great chance in this of this mark. It’s a much lesser race than the Hennessey and he was always a better horse on better ground and after a run. The forecast is for dry weather until Saturday in the area. If he improves at all from that run he will be right in the firing line here and 25/1 is huge. He was relatively poor last year but I think that run looked like the horse of previous years. It looks to me like he will shorten considerably in price so I can’t afford to wait until NRNB which was my original plan. With that in mind ill suggest a 1pt EW bet now and if the price holds after NRNB well have another 1pt EW then. I don’t fancy a lot else in the race at the prices
1 Point ew 25/1 Generally
Well he has backed into 16/1 but ran very poorly, i think i underestimated what the Hennessy may have taken out of him and the ground was a lot softer than I expected. I think we will get a decent day from him at some stage this year, perhaps at Cheltenham.
I’m going to put one up a bit early to take advantage of a silly looking price. Sgt Reckless looks well enough treated in this and I can’t understand him being a 50/1 shot at the moment. His hurdles form is easily good enough of this mark to get involved. We’ll have a small win bet at the huge odd currently available as he surly can’t get any longer in price. If we have to I’d be happy enough with the 33/1 generally available as well.
1 Point win 80 Betfair 50/1 Betway
With the 5 place terms now in for this race I just cat leave the 40/1 EW bet out here. I really like his changes of finishing in the first 5 here and 10/1 to place id far too big. I’m somewhat miffed that I dint wait until the 5 places was available but I didn’t think he would be available at that price.
1 Point EW 5 Place 40/1 365/tote/boylers/vc/stan
Maybe it was the Work night out that made me pick this but he didn’t cope with the soft ground and was never going well..
